Have you ever wondered what men really want? What goes on in their minds and why they act the way they do, especially in relationships? If you’ve been searching for answers to crack the code and create a happy, loving, long-term relationship without rejection, frustration, or missed connections, then you’re in the right place.
I’m Brody Boyd with Magnetize Your Man. Together with my wife Antia, we have been helping successful women all over the world for over 20 years to achieve the relationships and happiness they truly desire.
In this article, we’ll dive deep into two key insights that women wish they knew earlier about men. These insights will provide you with a deeper understanding of men’s perspectives and desires when it comes to relationships. So without further ado, let’s get started!
1 — Men Start Life at The Bottom of The Valley
It might surprise you to learn that most men start life facing an uphill battle when it comes to earning their sense of value with women. For many men, life is a constant struggle filled with proving themselves, achieving success, gaining status and recognition — all in order to attract high-quality women like yourself.
Understanding this inherent struggle can provide you with a unique perspective on men’s experiences. By recognizing their efforts and acknowledging their journey from “valley” to self-improvement and accomplishment as valuable members of society who deserve respect — especially in regards to attracting quality partners — you will develop a strong heart attraction from them.
2 — Men Are Looking for A Woman Who Admires Them
On top of wanting recognition for their efforts in bettering themselves as individuals — both externally (career success) and internally (personal growth) — men also crave admiration from their partners.
When a man finds a woman who genuinely admires him — who sees his true worth , respects him deeply,and appreciates both his character and the value he brings to the table — it boosts his self-esteem and strengthens the connection they share. Many relationships suffer because partners fail to express genuine admiration, leading to an imbalance where one partner does not feel valued or appreciated.
By becoming a woman who openly expresses your admiration for your man — highlighting what you love about him, acknowledging his strengths, and vocalizing your appreciation — you will create a compelling bond that draws him closer to you. This heartfelt approach allows him to see himself in a new light while fostering mutual respect and deepening emotional intimacy.
3 — Men Commit to Women Who Inspire Them to Greatness
Men crave a sense of purpose and meaning in their lives, and they want a partner who can inspire them to be the best version of themselves. A man wants to feel like he’s making progress in his personal growth and achieving greatness, not only for himself but also for the woman he loves. When you become his cheerleader and support him on his journey, he sees you as an integral part of his life. By acknowledging his efforts and encouraging him to pursue his passions, you create a deep emotional connection that makes him fall deeply in love with you.
4 — Sex and Love Are Completely Different for Men
It’s crucial to understand that men view sex and love separately. Just because a man engages in sexual activity doesn’t mean he has any emotional attachment or feelings of love towards the woman involved. Similarly, a man can experience deep love for a woman without having engaged in sexual intimacy. Many women make the mistake of using sex as a means to create an emotional connection with a man, but this rarely works in reality. Instead, focus on building an emotional bond through other means such as communication, shared experiences, and genuine affection.
5 — Men Want You to Be Your True Self
In today’s superficial society filled with artificial filters and societal expectations pushed by social media platforms like Instagram, authenticity is scarce but highly valued by men. Embrace your true self unapologetically — let go of masks created by societal pressures or past hurtful experiences. Show up on dates without makeup if it feels right or express your quirks confidently; being unabashedly authentic sets you apart from others.
By rediscovering who you truly are at your core — embracing femininity (if that resonates with you), creativity, intuition — men will see beyond surface-level interactions.You’ll stand out from other women they’ve encountered because they’ll have the chance to genuinely connect with your heart and essence. Men are drawn to women who can express their true selves openly and create a deeper emotional bond founded on authenticity.
6 — Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch are Generally the Top Love Languages for Most Men
In relationships, it’s important to understand that men have specific love languages. For most men, the top two love languages are words of affirmation and physical touch. This means that expressing admiration, respect, and appreciation towards a man can create a deep emotional connection. By vocalizing your love and using physical affection such as hugging or handholding, you can make a man feel valued and cherished in the relationship.
7 — Men Choose Women They Can Protect
For men, the desire to protect their partner is inherent. They seek women who they believe they can add value to by offering protection in various aspects of life — whether it be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. If you already have an independent nature and don’t rely on a man for protection or support due to your own capabilities in these areas, reevaluating this approach could benefit your relationships.
Allowing a man to take on the role of protector not only fulfills his need for purpose but also strengthens the bond between both partners. Embracing his desire to safeguard you will make him feel valuable in your life while creating stability within the relationship.
8 — Your Career Success Means Nothing To A Masculine Man
When it comes to attracting masculine men who are secure in themselves and their roles as providers or protectors; career success has little significance. While having financial stability may be appreciated by these men at some level when considering a long-term romantic partnership; achievements or status within one’s career do not contribute significantly to their perception of attractiveness.
Instead of focusing solely on professional accomplishments as measures of self-worth or desirability; prioritizing qualities such as femininity (emotional warmth), nurturing attributes (caring nature), vulnerability (authenticity), kindness (consideration) become essential factors when seeking lasting connections with masculine individuals capable/willing embrace roles that complements your own.
9 — Men See Women They Like As Either Sex Material Or Relationship Material
When a man is interested in a woman, he typically categorizes her as either someone he only wants a sexual relationship with or someone he sees potential for a long-term, committed relationship. It’s crucial for women to understand this distinction and make sure their intentions align with what they truly desire. If you’re seeking a romantic partnership, it’s essential to present yourself as relationship material and prioritize building an emotional connection rather than solely focusing on physical intimacy.
10 — In Relationships, Men Want Generally The Same Things You Do
Contrary to popular belief, men desire the same things in relationships that women do. They seek companionship, trust, emotional support, shared experiences, and ultimately want to build a life together with their partner. Understanding this common ground can help foster healthier connections by bridging the gap between genders’ expectations and desires. By communicating your intentions and finding alignment with each other’s goals for the future, you can create an authentic and fulfilling romantic bond based on mutual understanding.
By gaining insight into these 10 key aspects of male psychology outlined above (and not covered here), women can navigate relationships more effectively while avoiding misunderstandings or miscommunication along the way. Recognizing that men start at the bottom of their personal journey towards self-worth enables empathy and appreciation for their efforts. Women should also aim to be genuine in their interactions by embracing authenticity instead of conforming to societal pressures.
Remember that understanding love languages like words of affirmation and physical touch can play significant roles in nurturing emotional connections with men. Additionally, acknowledging men’s need to protect adds value to relationships by allowing them space where they feel needed.
Ultimately both parties involved want companionship built on trust — a partnership filled with shared values, aspirations, adventures — something grounded in reality rather than high divorce rates experienced due to lack of understanding gender differences — rather such being seen as opportunities to positively complement one another.
